    I’ll go ahead and say it before a troll points it out…Pokemon Blue was not one of the two first. That was just an American release. In Japan, which is what we’re talking about, it was Green and Red.

    You… do realize that this list, like any such list is bound to be, is INCREDIBLY BIASED?

    Japanese RPG? What a redundant thing to call it. No other country has a hand in RPG. Persona was way too cartoonish for me. I cant stand them. Final Fantasy should be 1.

      Seriously though the first three sentences of your post are incredibly uninformed.

      These were in chronological order of their release. I didn’t order them based on personal preference.

    This list is a BIT too biased for my liking. When doing a list like this, you have to weigh in other reasons for choosing the spots-popularity, critical reception, AND THEN your personal opinion. but it seems like you basically created this based solely on your personal opinion.

    i think some titles that I, personally, would’ve liked to have seen on here are

    Final Fantasy X
    Final Fantasy IX
    Final Fantasy
    Kingdom Hearts (the first one)

    though this is just my personal opinion.

      I tried to be non-biased. And I limited myself to one game per franchise.

    I wonder if people even read the little introductory paragraph before the lists anymore…
    In any case, nice list, though some minor typos here and there. Enjoyed reading it.

    My kind of list. However, you are a little biased haha. I would have to say FF10 was better than 7. just how it is. Both will go down in history though. Chrono trigger should be higher on the list. No game will match that feel ever again…besides if all the developers come back…which they wont haha. Good list though. controversial because it goes against the grain of conventional greatest rpgs. btw ZELDA???? greatest action/adventure/rpg. It is a ROLE playing game.

      I agree. Final Fantasy X was amazing. It’s my favorite video game of all time <3

        if its about game overall rating: my choice goes for FF VII ^o^
        but if u ask me for game plot, the one who best all of the Final Fantasy franchise for me is FF VI, lots of characters, all of them are main chars, each one with their own problems, sidequest, main history, whatever u wanna call it ^^

    Xenogears was great. My only complaint with it is that I was not sure if I was watching a great game, or playing a great movie!

    While I liked Persona 3 lots, I have to insist that Persona 2: Eternal Punishment had way better story and characters.

      He did this in chronological order of release, not based on preference.
